Edith head was an incredibly busy costume designer from 1948 until 1981. She designed so many iconic and amazing costumes. Including two of the films I have included in this project, "What A Way To Go" & "A New Kind Of Love". She also did the costumes for Sunset Boulevard & Roman Holiday. The list [...]
I had a hard time deciding which Todd Solondz film to do a painting of. I love how disturbed and lovely his movies are. I decided to paint Dawn Weiner from "Welcome To The Dollhouse" because her awkwardness is so painful & touching. I love that film so much!
As a kid I loved Samantha on Bewitched. I thought she was beautiful & so cool. As a grown up woman and mother of two young girls, I really love Endora now. I can TOTALLY understand her meddlesome nature. Her daughter is trying to hide her light under this wet blanket who wants Samantha to [...]
I LOVE costume dramas. I really prefer to call them period dramas, partly because my uterus demands that I watch these every 28 days. Nothing soothes a bad case of cramps like a Jane Austen teledrama. I love watching Dickens stories come to life. Elizabeth Gaskell stories thrill me to no end. I especially like [...]
I love Jonathan Richman, with the band the Modern Lovers or without them. His songs are seemingly simplistic, but they stay with you. His sound is upbeat, but there is always a little thread of sadness too.

Eartha Kitt is all over the place with her accent. I was so surprised to learn that she's from the southern U.S. Wherever she's [...]
Just for the colors alone, I love this movie. Fun fact about me: I LOVE accordion music. I mean, really truly adore it. So the soundtrack to this film is just thrilling to me. Of course I love the whimsy and the storytelling too. It's just all so good.
I couldn't decide if I should label this Olivia Newton-John or Xanadu. I looove them both ever so much. After listening to the soundtrack while painting, I decided to go for the actual movie. I mean there is that weird cartoon part, Michael Beck, and GENE KELLY. Also, I love all the ELO songs as [...]
